Classic, but better!

New 161's don't disappoint! Wider is perfect for my 9.5" deck. They turn so smooth, and are stable to crank down for half pipe. *stock bushings will hold and an angle if you are really cranked down.

got a 9.25 cruiser, thought these trucks would be perfect. Size is great, weight is fine, but can't really ride the trucks very loose without ditiching washers and breaking bushings or swapping bushings all together.

I've been trying to find thunder 161's since they were announced & this is the only place I could get them. They were extremely affordable & work perfectly with the board I have

Asked by James on 5/3/2018
I have a 8.38" deck. What size would be best for this set up? 148's or 149's?
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 5/3/2018
Either truck would work fine but the 149 will be closer to the width of your board and is what we would recommend unless you are considering sizing down below 8.25 on your deck size in the near future.
